I believe choosing the Labour Party would benefit the British-Chinese community on the whole. Labour’s leader, Jeremy Corbyn, said he respects and recognises the great contribution the British-Chinese community has made over many years. It is clear that the Labour Party hopes to convince British voters that they are here to stand for everyone from every level of society, bringing back fairness, equality and balance.

From easing the Brexit process to strengthening our relationship with the EU and the world; coming up with solutions to tackle the housing crisis and reducing homelessness; dealing with inflation and stopping the income inequality from growing; strengthening the NHS and working out the best social care for the elderly; pressing national security issues and revising immigration policies; reducing hate crime against minority groups and promoting diversity – these are just some of the many issues which need to be considered when we cast our votes. But for us British-Chinese voters, we ought to consider what each party can do for our community.

The NHS and Schools at risk - the Tory Threat to our public services

In just over a week’s time, the British people face a decision, between the Tories, who have presided over seven years of failure, under-investment and mismanagement of the NHS and our schools, and Labour who will protect these vital services we rely upon.

Britain is the fifth richest country in the world. But that means little when many people don’t share in that wealth. Many feel the system is rigged against them. And this manifesto sets out exactly what can be done about it.

The British Chinese community have a choice on June 8th to elect a Labour Government. Labour has been taking its message to the public across the nation, fighting for every vote. Theresa May has repeatedly hidden from the public in stage managed events, running from her Conservative Government's record.

The date of the General Election is on 8 June 2017.

Come and join us to get the Chinese votes out and expose this morally corrupt Conservative government.

Sonny Leong CBE, Chair of Chinese for Labour, “This snap election is totally unnecessary. It has nothing to do with Brexit but all to do with Tory Party management. Theresa May is not governing in the national interest but for her own political survival within her Party.

Now that it has been called, it gives us the opportunity to campaign for an alternative vision for Britain – one that is welcoming to the world; one that cares for the weak, unfortunate and poor; one that will challenge the establishment in cosying up to tax dodgers, right wing media and broadcasters. We will expose seven years of broken promises by this wicked and cruel Tory government within these seven weeks.

 The country has been sold a big fat lie in 2015 by the Conservatives that it needed strong and stable leadership - the result is there for all to see – the country totally divided, isolated and an ever increasing rise of racist and hate crimes targeted against the Chinese community.

Our country needs a fairer, caring and compassionate government and we all know, only a Labour Government can deliver that.”

On Wednesday 8th February 2017, Chinese for Labour celebrated Chinese New Year with their annual banquet at the Phoenix Palace. Over 200 people attended the event including British Chinese guests from business, the arts, students, public services and charities. Many members of Labour's Shadow Cabinet and fellow MPs and Peers were also represented.

Sonny Leong, Chairman of Chinese for Labour, said the return of a xenophobic, sometimes racist rhetoric and behaviour is impacting on the community. We must pursue a politics of hope strong enough to counter the growing force of a politics of fear. Sonny also gave special thanks to Raymond Siu, owner of the Phoenix Palace for hosting the event.

Other speakers at the event include Rt Hon Yvette Cooper MP and Dawn Butler MP

Highlights of the event include a Lion dance and auction, the proceeds of which will help support British Chinese people into politics.
